|a"...is about the gopher tortoise and the more than 360 different kinds of animals that depend upon it for survival. From owls to rabbits to skunks to scorpions, many animals use gopher tortoise burrows for shelter, food, or a place to raise their young. In this fascinating tale of ecological interdependency, children learn that the fate of one species can affect the fate of many."--P. of cover.
